...this blog has been getting some good attention (from these posts), and it has helped a few people become aware of Elliot Davis before having to listen to his spiel on a sidewalk somewhere.  Here are a couple recent comments that were made on my previous post:

Just saw Elliot this morning at the corner of Arch St & Milk St. He approached me with "Hey brother, can you help me out with--" but I recognized him mid-sentence and said "Hey, I've seen you before, you're that scam artist!". He responded with "Ohhhh, I'm a SCAM artist..." and I didn't see the rest of his reaction because I kept walking. Thanks for this blog, you saved me some time and potentially some money!

And another...

Ran into Elliot this morning on Summer Street near DTX towards South Station. It was pretty sparsely populated this morning, so when he approached me I already knew it was him from this blog. He immediately asked me for FixAFlat and I started laughing. He asked me what was so funny and I told him I had read about him on the internet and I started walking away. He yelled "What are you doing on the internet?" Hilarious.

Great stuff!!

  1. Encountered Elliot at Exchange Place, 53 State Street, the evening of April 14. Sadly my wallet is now $35 lighter. When I called the Boston police to report the incident, I was told that the only way to report it is to go into the station and fill out a report form. You'd think there would be an easier way of doing so.

  2. Just ran into him at Copley today. This guy is a super pro. I tailed him while calling 911, and when he realized I was on to him, he ran at my and smacked my hand, knocking my drink away.

    Security for the building had me file an assault report with BPD, so he is in fact dangerous. If you see him, call 911 from a distance.

    I also got a clean picture of him: http://imgur.com/a/WFO7n

  3. Guy got me. 40 bucks because I didn't have change and felt helping someone out. He even gave me his cell phone, which I called. So now he has my cell phone number and I have his. Not quite sure what to do, just kind of concerned he has my number...

    1. Too bad he got you for so much. I've never heard of him making use of the phone numbers people have given him, so that probably won't become a problem.

  6. Just spotted him at the corner of Brookline and Riverway in the Fenway. Seems like he has ditched the hat and suit for the summer. He was wearing black dress pants and nicely pressed short sleeve shirt.

  9. He just approached me at Milk and Kilby asking for money for a Fix-A-Flat. Thankfully I had seen this blog before and ignored him. July 19 2016.

  10. He got me two nights ago at Brigham circle, Mission Hill. He is back with a new number, so I'm guessing he's back looking for his fix on heroin/ crack.

  15. I just came across this blog from a friend you encountered Elliot last week, so I figure I should recount my stories of seeing him on here.

    1st time - About 2 years ago, BU Campus, around 100 bay state road. He approached me and gave me the fix a flat and phone collateral stump speech. He asked me for cash and I didn't have any (but I had actually experienced this same con with my father who actually had a can of fix a flat with him) so I told Elliot that I would walk to the nearest store with him and buy him a can to see if he was full of it. He then insisted that I just go to the nearest ATM and give him cash which is when I subsequently told him to get the hell out of my face.

    2nd time - About a year ago, I walked out of Hynes Convention Center on Mass Ave and he was at the exit/entrance and attempt to con me again but I then reminded him that he already tried that last year so I told him to get lost.

    And then last week my friend encountered Elliot on Buswell Street which is BU's south campus area.

    So I would be aware in those 3 places, I'm sure he rotates around.

  16. I am the victim of a con man from Cleveland, Ohio. To say that he turned my life upside down is an understatement. I read through your postings about Elliot. I applaud your actions but I have a burning question: has he been convicted? Are you in danger of defamation by posting his name and picture? I would LOVE to put my con man's name and picture out there to warn others but I don't want to end up with a lawsuit. Wouldn't THAT be ironic? Any advice you have would be appreciated.

  17. I ran into him last week outside the Friendship Heights metro station in DC.
